Remarkable stat - we have 3 of the top 20 tacklers and yet we'd probably be the lowest tackling team (certainly feels that way)

Everyone else must be sitting on their hands.
Third lowest tackling team this season.

Oscar Allen is our highest tackler apart from the big 3... with less than 50.

would be interesting to see a "most terror, fear and pain inflicted per tackle" statistic because Jed Anderson would have to be at the top of that list

Richmond supporters upset none of their players were mentioned in a thread, and try make it about their players and/or mention the 2017 Grand Final.

I’m shocked.
Pathetic response. How dare someone mention a player from the team they support who is 3rd in the comp for tackle average.

Shock horror.

He's a tackling beast. Impressive we have three in that list given we aren't known for tackling. Although a high tackle count isn't a part of our game, I feel we are by a fair margin the best team in the comp when we do. Our best is still the best in the comp imo.

Nakia Cockatoo from the cats will kill someone if he gets back on the park and gets some continuity
Both look to Trav Varcoe for inspiration in this area.

His quads show it as well. Whenever he lifts himself to his feet at a stoppage you realise he does that dozens of times every game. Physically more like a rugby player.
